Brave New Version,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Tempest [DVD] (DVD)
I can see why this was criticised when it was released - the rock soundtrack is overpowering at times, and the special effects are actually not that special - but on the whole it's a brave attempt at looking at this wonderful play in a whole new way. I am very fond of The Tempest, which I suppose could have worked against this inventive adaptation, but I though it was an interesting vision and my seventeen year old son enjoyed it immensely, which is fantastic - anything that gets teenagers into Shakespeare is OK in my book.
